News: Rapper Heavy D Passed Away R.I.P
Dwight Arrington Myers was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old. An associate of Heavy D's said the rapper had pneumonia. Heavy D had just returned from shopping and walked up some stairs when he began having trouble breathing. Adam Mills, a designer who was in the building and knew Heavy D, found him leaning against a railing and clearly in distress. Adam tells us he cradled Heavy D in his lap as others called 911. Adam says Heavy D was conscious and said to him, "I can't breathe, I can't breathe." When paramedics took Heavy D to the hospital he had a pulse. People in the building are saying he died of a heart attack, but we have not been able to confirm that.
